I have been a subscriber of Game Informer Magazine for years now. It comes free with Game Stop’s PowerRewards program and it’s worth it just for the magazine. This magazine features really good up and coming games and includes those indie games that we all end up loving. Many writers tend to skip these games as it doesn’t sell as well.
The format is great as well. The first few pages are letters, fan artwork, letter from the editor and table of contents. Next up is their feature (cover) article, which usually spans a good 10 pages or so. Then there are previews of upcoming games and finally reviews of current games. I typically agree with their reviews, but there’s always a time or two when you’ll think they are off the mark.
I strongly recommend this magazine. The artwork is superb, it’s quality writing and it’s enjoyable all around. It is available in both digital and print.
